The intent of meditation is detachment, especially detachment from the notion that thoughts are “mine” or represent “me.” In Reality, they are merely “its,” as is the mind itself. The idea of ownership arises from the personalization of these thoughts due to familiarity because the mind (like a camera) was present to record these past thoughts, events, and memories. However, it recorded them only because they were imbued with importance. Note that little roadside detail is recalled from a boring cross-country drive. The mind’s inner camera records what is valued.
